DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the baby okras and wash in cold water and then place in a colander to drain.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the oil or butter and add in the meat and brown on all side.
  • Add the crushed garlic and chopped onions to the meat and saute till brown.
  • Add in the chopped tomatoes, stirring in till the tomatoes are all broken down and soft, for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Add in all the spices and salt and give it a good mix.
  • Add enough water to cover the meat (about 7-8 cups) and stir to combine well.
  • Add in the trimmed okras and bring to boil.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 hours, until the meat is tender (the sauce will thicken as it cooks).
  • Lastly, pour in the lemon juice and add in the chopped coriander and carefully stir once or twice (careful not to mash the okras) and gently simmer for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve with rice.
